Sunderbani narco-militancy case
Jammu: Three key conduits, involved in Rs 150 crore narcotics recovery case in Sunderbani area, were arrested by security forces in the Poonch border district on Friday, officials said.
They were part of an inter-state drug peddling racket, which was busted by security forces on June 1. Two of its members were arrested here with 22 kg of narcotics worth over Rs 150 crore in the international market, they said.
“In the follow up operations to the Sunderbani narcotics recovery case, multiple joint operations have been conducted by the Indian Army and police in Poonch district in the last 72 hours,” Public Relations Officer (PRO) Defence said.
During the operation, three main conduits and operatives of the cross-border narco-militancy module have been apprehended, PRO said.
The apprehended conduits have been identified as Shakar Din of Degwar Terwan Village, Rashid and Shafir both residents of Kalas village of district Poonch, the officer said.
During search operations, warlike stores, including two grenades, have also been recovered from their possession, he said.
PRO said extensive joint search operations are currently in progress.
The apprehension of these three individuals is a major blow to the complex cross-border narco-militancy nexus being operated from Pak, he said.
